We're swingin . . .

We picked up our swing tonight with some of the money we received at the baby shower last week. I love it. It matches the living room perfectly. And it is apparently the last one of these in the southeastern US. I checked online today and only one Target seemed to have one left.....and now they have none! It was really easy to assemble. It has an elephant theme and a place to plug in your MP3 player, which we really liked. Napster has lots of lullabyes, FYI.

September shower.

We had our first baby shower last Friday! So exciting.......she's almost here! This one was given by my friends Alicia and Lyndsay (Thanks girls!) and was attended by lots of fellow lawyers, courthouse clerks, DA's & probation office staff, and staff from our own office. I am so glad everyone came out to share in our special time. We got many wonderful gifts. These are only a few of them. My friend and co-worker, Laura, made the beautiful red gingham quilt in the first photo. It is perfect for our nursery! I still need to take photos of some of the other unique gifts and will do that today! Thanks everyone!

We attended our last birthing class last night. We are now certified. We had a little party last night at the class and everyone brought refreshments. I made these pink and blue onesie sugar cookies. Aren't they cute. I would have put a lot more detail into them, but Future Daddy forced me to go sit on the couch instead. They still turned out pretty cute.

We just got this doll for our baby. She is quite cute and for 0+ years. She is going to sit in the tiny rocking chair in the nursery.
